Thumbs up Joshua Tree National Park

Hello Jillian,

The south entrance at Cottonwood Spring is the closest to Palm Desert and it's just under an hour away. If you drive to the Joshua Tree west entrance, you're looking at an hour and a 1/2 drive. What you may want to consider is entering the park at the Joshua Tree entrance and then work your way to the Cottonwood entrance/exit. It's about 70 miles between the points - figuring in a couple of popular side trips like Keys View & Cottonwood Spring Oasis. Allow yourselves no less than 2 hours.

You can get to the south entrance at Cottonwood Spring via Interstate 10 and to the Joshua Tree west entrance via Highway 29. There are visitor centers at both of these entrances.

Be sure to have a full tank of gas, food, and plenty of water.

We hope you have a terrific time!
